In barely 2 months-time, the COVID-19 virus entered the United States and took hold in a long-term care facility in Washington state.  Less than 30 days later, the COVID-19 pandemic now poses perhaps the gravest threat to the life and safety of nursing home and assisted living facility residents and staff from coast to coast seen in more than a century.

As nursing homes plan and implement steps to address the COVID-19 crisis, and as resident families judge those efforts, a panel of experienced litigators explore and discuss important issues when considering culpability, including:

  • Title 42 Code of Federal Regulation §483.65 on Infection Control 
  • Guidelines from the Center for Medicare/Medicaid Service for Infection Control and Prevention of Coronavirus 2019 in Nursing Homes
  • Potential Problems Posed by Family Visitation Restrictions
  • Current Literature from Physicians to Slow COVID-19 in Nursing Homes
  • Whether Civil Lawsuits are Viable/Justified/Inevitable 
  • The Likely “Second Wave” of the Pandemic

Recorded on April 23, 2020.
